An Art Dealer's Look on How to Collect
Friday, April 7, 2017, 6:30 by Jane Coats Eckert
Taking the mystery out of collecting art.
Jane Coats Eckert's roots are in 19th and early 20th century American Art. For many years she lectured and published books on artists from that era. In 1996 she opened a gallery in Naples, Florida where she met artist Robert Rauschenberg and formed a business relationship and friendship that would last till his passing. Today the gallery is located in the beautiful village of Kent, Connecticut where she continues to feature the early American artists alongside the finest of Modern and Contemporary Art.
Ms. Eckert is currently the Chair of the Director's Advisory Council at Mass MoCA in North Adams, Mass and has served as the Secretary of the Fine Art Dealers Association (FADA). She is a partner in Coats Wright Art and Design in Carmel, Indiana and is the exclusive representative of the Realist painter, Eric Forstmann.
Doors open at 6:00pm. Light refreshments will be served.
This event is free & open to the public. Donations are accepted.

Stass Shpanin | "Coltland Souvenir Shop"
...Shpanin transforms the gallery into an improvised theme shop dedicated to the well-known Hartford native gun manufacturer Samuel Colt. Starting as a performer and a clown, and selling laughing gas, Colt becomes the focal point character to investigate American culture, politics, and history. “I called it a souvenir shop, not a gift shop, because souvenirs refers to a memory of a place. There is a certain absurdity in making a souvenir shop for the place that does not physically exist. It all plays a part in a larger context of “institutional critique” I am very involved with.”
On view: april 1 - April 30, 2017
